The Wing Luke Museum has plenty of woks and noodle presses for its upcoming exhibit on food in the region's Asian-Pacific communities, but curators are still seeking community members' food memories to illustrate the primary themes of "From Fields to Family: Asian Pacific Americans and Food."
Museum curators are inviting Seattle Weekly readers to submit "favorite food-related photos" and accompanying text explaining why their chosen images are meaningful to them. A selection of submitted photos will be included in the exhibit, opening Oct. 13. Photos will also be displayed in an online Seattle Weekly slideshow, scheduled to debut the same day.
There are two ways to submit a photo. Images can be uploaded directly to Flickr and tagged "FieldstoFamily," or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Either way, make sure to include contact information so exhibit curators can reach you. The Flickr site will remain active for the duration of the exhibit, but to be considered for exhibit inclusion, photos must be submitted by Oct. 7.
Since the call isn't a contest, there aren't any guidelines governing photo content. Although photos related to Asian-Pacific food around the Puget Sound are undoubtedly welcome, readers are encouraged to submit any food-related image that's a favorite.
